We first saw Burnside Farm sitting on top of a hill as we approached in the ferry. We had a lovely, friendly welcome from Joy and were shown to a beautiful room with a huge bed and a deluxe bathroom. A lovely touch were all the goodies left in our room which we enjoyed while looking out at the view... More

My husband and I stayed at Burnside Farm in October for three nights and had a tremendously wonderful experience. Our double room was clean, spacious and decorated with charm, down to the pressed linen sheets and homemade shortbread. The ensuite bathroom made us feel like we were in a spa... truly deluxe! The hosts opened their lovely home and made... More

We arrived at the farm while the hosts were away on an errand, and were greeted by the friendly and hard-working farm dog and the dairy cows grazing in the yard. When our hostess arrived, she showed us to a large and comfortable room that far exceeded most hotel accommodations. We enjoyed a king-sized bed, a very nicely appointed private... More

I have stayed in many B&Bs and I can think of nothing that could be done or provided that would make this cozy place any better. I wasn't expecting the world class bathroom with great soaps and lotions, lux linens, and large breakfast menu selection. Joy had me at the home made 'stewed rhubarb' on the sideboard in the morning.... More

Our stay with Joy and Robbie at Burnside Farm B&B was wonderful. Joy responds quickly to e-mails and helped us make the decision to drive this far north on our Scotland trip. Caution: be prepared to gain weight! Joy is a fabulous cook and the breakfasts are more than generous, with everything homemade and milk directly from the cows on... More

My husband and I and our daughter and her fiancé stayed for 2 nights in this lovely B&B where we were made to feel very comfortable. What we liked most about it was that we were free to go in and out of the house whenever we pleased. The views from our room were spectacular and the breakfast was scrumptious.... More

We had such a lovely, warm welcome. Joy was helpful even before we got there, replying quickly to e-mails with answers to all of my questions! We arrived before check-in time but were able to drop our bags off in our room before setting out again. The rooms were lovely, just perfect size for us with a big and very... More

The room was spacious, bathroom was large, breakfast was plentiful and delicious, owners were delightful... what else can we say? Another couple that arrived said they were desperately looking for a place with good breakfast (They were French) and we're very happy with the farm fresh eggs, home made cheese, bread etc.....

We rented a car on Orkney, which I would highly recommend. Access to the Burnside Farm B&B was easy. Hosts were really wonderful and went out of their way to be helpful, food was fabulous. Room was very, very comfortable. I also liked being on Stromness - we enjoyed the dinner options and strolling through town. It was also nice... More

Everything was great, from the warm welcome onwards. It was only a few minutes walk from the harbour but we gratefully accepted the offer of a lift. Lovely comfortable beds, great up-to-date en suite facilities and fabulous breakfasts, including lots of local produce. I shall miss the bere bannocks! Joy provided daily updates on what was on, the weather and... More
